in the city in ohio and if i did not have a public pension i think that would have been working for the rest of my life. an earlier caller mentioned pensions being affected, but when this crisis happened, you had to have some faith in the economic system. when you look at what happened during the depression, we came out of it. i figured at that time that the country would eventually come out of it. where would we have been five years later? nowhere. i have a tendency to side with the republicans, but at the same time i still think that some of those protections were warranted for people. into the system you get so many people on fox news, knocking down public pensions. the average person in ohio makes about $26,000 per year. all of that talk about locking down those pensions is just bad, really bad, they should stop it. host: what is your pension look like? tell us about it. caller: it is not a bad tension. they did change this, it has changed. you are able to retire at 55, but they changed it to 57. you need 25 years in the system to do that. most people will go for 30 years in ohio. i am a

. peter, calling from new york city. hey, peter. >> caller: hey bill, good morning. how are you? >> bill: thanks for joining us. what's your take on all of this? >> caller: my take is that i'm actually alarmed that we think that we can't cut $85 billion out of a $3.6 trillion budget or to put it another way about 1/3 of 1% of the $17 trillion gross domestic product and think that this is going to crater our economy. if our economy is that weak, then there's been no recovery and what is the point anyway? if we're really concerned about the cuts, bill, why don't you advocate the president give all of the different departments to take the cuts and allocate it so it's best used so it is not across the board. >> bill: first he can't do that. of the sequester is legislation passed by congress which calls for across-the-board cuts. the president can't unilaterally rewrite legislation. so that's the first thing my response to you peter is first of all, i would say -- the congressional budget office says it is going to shrink the economy by 1.3%. it is going to reverse our economic recovery and i
